Accommodation

Host Family

In selecting host families, the school does not look for luxury and comfort in the material sense but for Italian families who appreciate receiving foreign students. Additionally, the word “family” should not be taken too literally, as a family can be “traditional” with children, a single parent or a childless couple who take in students because they enjoy the company.

You can choose between a single or shared room with breakfast or half board (breakfast and dinner). You have your meals together with the family but you should be aware that Italian eating habits can be rather different from your own. Breakfast usually only consists of coffee or tea and bread, butter, marmalade. Dinner is a complete meal served normally at around 8:00 pm.

Living with a family offers a unique opportunity to become acquainted with the Italian culture and way of living, but it also requires compromises between the host and you.

Shared apartment

Living in an apartment, together with other foreign or Italian students or with the landlord/landlady, requires maturity but allows you considerable independence. You share with the room-mate(s) the bathroom and the kitchen and can cook on your own. You share a flat or floor of a house either with other students, with other Italian students or with the owner. Students share the kitchen and the bathroom. The apartments are furnished and the kitchens are supplied with all essential kitchen equipment (cutlery, plates, pans etc.). You can prepare your meals separately or together with your flatmates and fellow students.

Transfer

A transfer service from Rome airport/station to your accommodation is available at an extra cost. Alternatively we can provide you with advice on travel.

Leisure

Rome has an unlimited variety of activities on offer and we believe that experiencing the culture helps you to truly learn Italian. The school therefore organises cultural activities for students in addition to Italian lessons.
